Choosing a pair of knitting needles seems easy—until you realise how many different types of knitting needles there are. Beginners should choose wooden ones, which are easier to grip than metal or plastic styles.

If you follow a pattern, check to see which type of needles the design requires. Typically, circular needles work best for large or bulky projects, while straight styles are perfect for small or flat projects. Choose the proper knitting needles for your project and create something beautiful and one-of-a-kind.
